Withhold COVID-19 relief from states without mask mandates: Sen. Feinstein

Senator Dianne Feinstein on Thursday requested the Senate to aid an amendment to the next coronavirus relief bill which seeks to prevent disbursal of stimulus funding to states which do not implement mask mandates. The Senator said that it was necessary for Congress to step in and take such measures in order to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Authoritarians on the Left unite! Force your fellow citizens to obey your every whim! Bask in your moral superiority and virtue! Decry the plebian slobs who resist your righteous rule as Grandma Murderers!

This is such a paradoxical proposition. Doesn't the Senator realize that not providing COVID-19 relief to some states will make them unable to tackle the pandemic which means it will only prolong the problem for the whole of the USA? Add to this, the ethics of holding a state in this situation is not going to suddenly make people start wearing masks. But then again, whats the other way to tell people to wear something that'll potentially save lives?
